To Tour

♥★  I have officially paid the total amount for my topdeck adventure!!!! ♥★
Here's a wee run down for those of you who care.
All these places over 24 days of fun-filled amazingness. 
The dream will soon be a reality.

I have also booked myself on a mini three day tour of Scotland for the beginning of March, to start off the adventure and to keep myself entertained :)

I cannot contain my excitement about visiting all of these counties.
And I shall document all the amazingness, right here.  
 Stay tuned.

Happy Days

"Can you be happy for 100 days in a row?"

I have recently signed up for the #100happydays challenge online! A challenge I have accepted to make myself find and appreciate the happy moments in daily life. 
The next month or so of planning, and working, and saving, and organising, are bound to be stressful. 
It's kinda how I do things. 
So I'm doing this happy day challenge to help me relax a little and enjoy these moments. 

If you would like to join me on my happy journey, pop over to my tumblr account ( where I plan to post my daily happy photos.
So far, so good.

Yes, I am one of those people who documents their lives through instagram.
 Yes, you can expect to see a lot more of this happening during my travels.

 Yes, I use hashtags in every post  #andiloveit
Yes, I probably use instagram a little too often.
 But no, I will not stop.
Feel free to follow my instagram feed for regular updates of my european adventures - kathrynheffernan - or un-follow me if you feel like the idea of this is extremely horrifying.
I won't be offended.

The Problem

My big OE travel experience shall start March 2. 
I am excited out of my mind.
I want to go everywhere and see everything and meet everyone and learn everything and write it all, right here, as a database for my future career.

The problem? I don't have the habit of writing like I used to. 
I don't know where to start, what words to use, how to convey any emotion, or how to describe what I see, the way I was confident I could.

So I'll start here. Please bear with me. It may be terrible and it might be painful to read, but I know I need to start somewhere. Hopefully I'll fill my pages up with images to keep you all entertained and up to date with my travels. ♥ I'm excited to share it all with you. 

And so it begins......
